Dirty Heart 03:53
And my baby she fell in love with a dirty heart And my baby loved dirty lovin' right from the start Yeah my baby she fell in love with a dirty heart And my baby loved dirty lovin' right from the start You feel me like cholesterol, sliding through the tunnel of love You want me, dirty no gloves For picking me up, you spin me 'round You tell me you want me however I'm found With filthy knees and multiple pleas You tell me you need me, whatever, please Like a small child's face, covered in cake Pleasure, like chocolate, is all over the place And my baby she fell in love with a dirty heart And my baby loved dirty lovin' right from the start Yeah my baby she fell in love with a dirty heart And my baby loved dirty lovin' right from the start Mudsliding, paragliding, shaking squirming, wrenching, writhing Down you go, down into the gloom Unclean attraction, in chains, reaction Sniffing, snorting, mucus-coated passion You came to me, knowing just what this would be Grungy, befouled, your body aches for more Your soul frustrated, pleasure abated Sweat, mud and grime, your body saturated I'm sorry my dear, but it's really very clear You saw, you see, you want, you signed on the dotted line My dirty heart it called you, it should have appalled you, Instead your mind was trapped in kind, in my muck it caught you And my baby she fell in love with a dirty heart And my baby loved dirty lovin' right from the start Yeah my baby she fell in love with a dirty heart And my baby loved dirty lovin' right from the start

I Don't Know 03:54
I don't know, haven't we been here before? The story begins, we have to ask, what are we in for? It's 'love', that same old feeling I saw it on TV Two people happy, smiling Could it be you and me? I don't know, haven't we been here before? We want something so bad, bad things we will ignore You want it, hoping, pleading, you want it, wanting, needing You want it, at any cost, you want it, really, you're lost Cos what if, TV isn't real, or what if, that ain't how I feel We're rushing, to the abyss – the promise of bliss… I don't know, haven't we been here before? You open up your heart, giving, needing, wanting more It seems, the pain we'll feel We're willing to take the risk Hoping it won't be real Hoping love won't play its same old tricks I don't know, haven't we been here before? Perpetual hope despite the past, yeah, that's wise for sure I don't know, haven't we been here before? (repeat)

Tell Me 04:22
I can only share my stories in your words Your ears, unspoken depth, they cannot hear Through glassy walls our screaming conversation's rendered dumb Deaf, eyes wide. Hearts muted and bare Trapped, each other we are – captured in our heads Desperately reaching, searching for something, anything, understanding But our efforts are in vain And she said: "Why can't you tell me, can't you tell me, can't you tell me what you're talking about? Why can't you tell me, can't you tell me? Tell me what you really mean, tell me in some simple words Why is it so hard to see? Why can't you be clear? Your philosophic, stupid bullshit, peddle it some other place Tell me what you really mean, tell it to me simple, straight Let me respond. "Nah" (repeat) All I mean is not negative, not terrible, perhaps derivative A simple truth is all I seek, I seek with humble heart It's difficult, I understand, to talk to me, to understand I'm here to lend a helping hand, I want you here with me You and me, we're so connected, you're all I want, you're what I needed I don't want to lose you, I don't want to wreck it, I just have a thought I need you to check it It seems to me, quite obviously, that when I say a word it's only what I see When you agree, you see what you see and never, anyhow can it mean the same to me In a way, then we're somewhat apart and everything we say flies past the mark All communication, therefore, is flawed and mistaken You and me, him and her, anyone, anywhere, trying for understanding, desperately, hopelessly If this is true, there's no need to be alarmed, I don't think it's a problem, just facts and fun I'm not saying that we're disconnected, in any way more than could ever be suspected, I'm not being difficult, well, not just for the sake of it, you've heard me out, that's all I ask of you I hope you'll understand me, I hope that you'll try. Whatever that means. And she said: Why can't you tell me, can't you tell me, can't you tell me what you're talking about? Why can't you tell me, can't you tell me? Tell me what you really mean, tell me in some simple words Why is it so hard to see? Why can't you be clear? Your philosophic, stupid bullshit, peddle it some other place Tell me what you really mean, tell it to me simple, straight You and me, we're so connected, you're all I want, you're what I needed I don't want to lose you, I don't want to wreck it, I just have a thought I need you to check it It seems to me, quite obviously, that when I say a word it's only what I see When you agree, you see what you see and never, anyhow can it mean the same to me

Smile 04:23
I'm here alone, there's no-one here beside me Obviously... if I'm alone Just making it clear, making clear everything, everything, anything Explaining makes it more confusing I know, I know, I wish that I knew anything Anything to make you smile I know that I can make you smile through the tears I hope that I can keep you smiling for years I want to tell you you're the rose to my thorn I wish I had some chords and cliches less worn A meaningful song, a slow, self-conscious rambling Am I doing it wrong, why aren't you here? Helping me along, helping me with everything, everything, anything You make things clear for me and... I know, I know, I know I don't know anything Except I want to make you smile I know that I can make you smile through the tears I hope that I can keep you smiling for years I want to tell you you're the rose to my thorn I wish I had some chords and cliches less worn I miss you, I want you I don't know how to express that I need you I wish that I could tell you in pretty new words and phrases how I feel I found you, you saved me From the loneliness and emptiness life gave me With you I feel awakened from a slumber, you are my lucky number, my charm, you are my... I'm here alone, right back to where I started from You and me, I hope that makes you smile I know that I can make you smile through the tears I hope that I can keep you smiling for years I want to tell you you're the rose to my thorn I wish I had some chords and cliches less worn

Space 03:38
Sometimes we all need space From the things we love, from the things we hate Space to feel, space to see There's more to me than just you and me Sometimes, space is what we need Sometimes, space is all we need I promise you, I hope it's true I hope that space is all I need I don't mean to hurt you I don't mean to make you cry I know that you're worrying And wanting to ask me why I don't want to tell you I don't want to make you cry You know what I think that I need? I think that I need some space I don't want to hear you I don't want you near me I don't want to see you Baby, can you hear me? You don't even notice That you make me like this I don't want to see you Baby, can you hear me? Sometimes we all want space Wisely, untrustingly, you know that it leads to an evil place Space is false, 'cause space, you see Is the growing space between you and me Sometimes, space is what we need Sometimes, space is all we need I can't think or breathe I don't want to hear you I don't want you near me I don't want to see you Baby, can you hear me? You don't even notice That you make me like this I don't want to see you Baby, can you hear me? Sometimes we all want space (repeat) A mystery, it seems to me This longing this yearning, I want to be free I don't know the cure, I just pay the fee I need to be me more than just you and me You tell me it's bullshit, I'm full of it, me Selfish and desperate, my heart lacks the key I want to be better, Us, you and me But right now we're drowning, two wrecks in a sea

Last Thing 03:44
You're the last thing on my mind I wish you could see me now, I wish you were here, the last thing on my mind, before I sleep You're everything I'd wanted for, I'd been waiting, wishing, hoping, I wish you were here, the last thing on my mind, before I sleep It's getting lonely, lights are dimming now, Before I lay me down to sleep The last thing on my mind you are right now, The last thing on my mind before I go to sleep But these things happen, past to future happens And the clock keeps ticking and tocking and we're running, On this one-way track, time we can't get back So that's where I'm at, before I go to sleep You're the last thing on my mind It's not a problem now It's not like I care You're the last thing on my mind, before I sleep It had to end, of that I'm sure, our clashing, crying, torture, still, I wish you were here, the last thing on my mind, before I sleep But these things happen, past to future happens And the clock keeps ticking and tocking and we're running, On this one-way track, time we can't get back So that's where I'm at, before I go to sleep The pain of separation The change of routine The longing for the comfort Of a known misery I want to straighten my head out Don't want to long or weep You're still the last thing on my mind... But these things happen, past to future happens And the clock keeps ticking and tocking and we're run ning, On this one-way track, time we can't get back So that's where I'm at, before I go to sleep

It's OK 02:57
It's ok baby It's ok baby Statistically speaking, there has to be, somebody, somewhere who's willing to be, Involved in your bullshit, drowned in your sea, Together, forever, awesome you'll be At first you may wonder, how could this be? Already you found me, perfect were we Now I'm sorry baby, I'm making you see Just how over we are you and me Its ok baby There's plenty of fish in this big wide world And for every boy there must be a girl It's ok baby Beggars make choices every day For somebody somewhere you're what they can take It's ok baby Our relational pasts from what I can tell Consisted of enduring interpersonal hell Overwhelmed by insecurity and fear We grabbed what we could and we clutched it near Now, given these models, of two-person joining Aside from all the bumping and grinding of loin-ing We were destined for failure and regret But it's ok – for someone you're the best they can get Its ok baby There's plenty of fish in this big wide world And for every boy there must be a girl It's ok baby Beggars make choices every day For somebody somewhere you're what they can take It's ok baby Two peas in a pod, you'll probably be With someone more willing and needy than me It's ok baby It's not that I hate you, it's not that you're shit It's just that, baby, you're really not it It's ok baby

Murky Brown 05:51
Driving along this dusty track I gotta keep going, I can't go back Nothing to drink for miles around Except the water from the tap which is murky brown Driving away, escaping Flesh biodegrading Complications escalating Nearly dehydrating A night of watching, waiting Stalking, celebrating Cutting, slicing, scratching, scraping Screaming is elating Driving along this dusty track I gotta keep going, I can't go back Nothing to drink for miles around Except the water from the tap which is murky brown I hunt in the night, coz that's when I can Driving around in my camper van Don't need no home except for these four wheels Hear those babies squeal Running from the law, sure it's cliche I don't have time to worry about that today If I'm caught, to the devil I give thanks For her body in the water tank Driving along this dusty track I gotta keep going, I can't go back Nothing to drink for miles around Except the water from the tap which is murky brown Was great when it started, now she's departed Drove me to the limit now I'm bloody, dirty-hearted The last thing on my mind was the last thing I could take I made her smile, she made me cry, crumble, snap and break I got me some, of her, of that, my dirty heart, she missed it Her wanting, needing, pushing, pulling took my mind and twisted I needed out, I needed air, I needed my own space 'It's OK' I whispered, to her sleeping face Driving along this dusty track I gotta keep going, I can't go back Nothing to drink for miles around Except the water from the tap which is murky brown
